But anybody with a taste for frothy, escapist entertainment will surely appreciate it as well. Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre's choice of the Tony Award-winner, which premiered on Broadway in 1992 and is based on the Gershwin's 1930 musical "Girl Crazy," as part of its current season was a reminder that it knows its target audience well.

  10. There's a lot of 'Nice Work' in Bushnell presentation of Gershwin musicalRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Feb 6 | Examiner.com

That's even more impressive knowing that this is a non-equity show, meaning that the actors, although they are trained professionals, are not members of the stage actors' union, Actors' Equity . This means that, in addition to not being represented by the union, these actors have not previously appeared on Broadway nor in Equity tours of Broadway musicals or in certain productions at theaters operating under Equity contracts.
